Psalms 80:8

Context

80:8 You uprooted a vine 1  from Egypt;

you drove out nations and transplanted it.

Psalms 80:15

Context

80:15 the root 2  your right hand planted,

the shoot you made to grow! 3 

1 sn The vine is here a metaphor for Israel (see Ezek 17:6-10; Hos 10:1).

2 tn The Hebrew noun occurs only here in the OT. HALOT 483 s.v. III כֵּן emends the form to כַּנָּהּ (kannah, “its shoot”).

3 tn Heb “and upon a son you strengthened for yourself.” In this context, where the extended metaphor of the vine dominates, בֵּן (ben, “son”) probably refers to the shoots that grow from the vine. Cf. Gen 49:22.
